Helio Releases New MySpace for Ocean Users

Have you noticed that if you try to get on MySpace by using its URL to view the website outside of 'Myspace on Helio' you simply can't? I mean sure, one of Helio's biggest boasts is their access to Helio that - until recently - no one else had. Although I like this feature it just seemed so plain. It worked fine; other than viewing pictures according to caption names it wasn't bad at all. You could always find other users, view friends, post comments, message, and all of the other wonderful things you can do on MySpace. One thing is for sure though, I just wanted something different, which is why a part of me was happy to get the Helio Ocean because I could view MySpace whichever way I chose. Wrong!

 

Helio reborn, but probably should’ve stayed dead

Helio reborn, but probably should’ve stayed dead

Helio has been resurrected from the grave, with the short-lived network that helped usher in social on your phone being reborn as a budget option. Emerging as an MVNO - and using the Sprint network that actually absorbed the company back in 2010 - the promise is no minimum contracts and the ability to use your own device. At first glance, there's a lot to like: $29 for unlimited voice, text, and data, but in one important way the deal is a little too close to cell service ten years ago.

Rumor: Helio Mysto is Samsung U600?

Rumor: Helio Mysto is Samsung U600?

God I hope so, that is one sexy ass phone. Helio does always manage to pick the cream of the proverbial crop when it comes to phones, most recently the Fin, and amazing phone packing GPS a 3MP cam, support for up to a 4GB microSD card, a huge screen, it really was a work of art.

And now, if this rumor is true, they are getting a phone that looks like a slider version of and updated, and slightly better looking, version of the Fin, and I am sure it will have more/better features too. Helio is the company that knows how to do a slider correctly too, just look at the Ocean, one of the few phones out there without a touch screen that is still a decent competitor to the iPhone.

Helio Fin – Thin and sexy

Helio Fin – Thin and sexy

Helio has finally taken the wraps off of their latest phone device which is made by Samsung. The Fin is a thin and sleek clamshell phone that packs quite a few high-end features. But will it be enough to make me put down my Ocean?

The Fin is actually Helio's first clamshell phone, and it's definitely a good choice. It is currently the thinnest flip-phone available in the US measuring in at 11mm. The phone comes with a 2.3-inch QVGA display with a resolution of 240 x 320. The camera shoots at 3Megapixels with a 4x zoom, and shoots video in MPEG-4. Stereo Bluetooth is also supported.

SlashGear Week in Review: Week 5 2009

We opened the week with our first-impressions of the T-Mobile BlackBerry Curve 8900, a surprisingly adept smartphone that's managed to impress despite the absence of 3G.  We've also been playing with Vuzix's iWear AV230XL OLED video headset, and the VIA Artigo A2000 Barebone Storage Server.  Finally, if you prefer your gadgets with a bit of (artificial) flesh on their bones, take a look at our Orbita Mouse unboxing; we'll have the full review this coming week.

SlashGear Week in Review: Week 3 2009

Things are traditionally quiet in the tech world the week following CES, but we've seen our fair share of intrigue over the past seven days.  Biggest news, in terms of share impact at least, is Steve Jobs' surprise leave-of-absence due to "health concerns", which has managed to overshadow both the teased redsn0w iPod touch 2G Jailbreak and rumors that the upcoming Mac mini refresh will use NVIDIA's Ion chipset.

In cellphones, it looks like the Helio Ocean 2 is almost ready to ship, but it could be too little, too late now that the Palm Pre is catching all the headlines.  Latest Pre rumor is that Vodafone UK will be picking it up as an exclusive; for all the details on Palm's new smartphone, check out this round-up post and then head over to Pre Community.

SlashGear Review – Pantech C150

The C150 is one of the latest low-end phones to come from Pantech. Low-end doesn't mean it's not a good phone, it just means that it doesn't have all of the fancy features that you'd find in your smartphones and such.
